It's a charming place. Definitely ask for a room at the to plevel so you wake up to a beautiful view. Rooms are spacious and clean. I haven't met anybody in staff that knows English but they go beyond expected to help you out. Breakfast is good. Lots of pastries, sweets, which is typical for Brazil. Fresh orange juice as...

As we were coming by car from Belo Horizonte, it has been a bit hard to find the street where the Pousada is located. And this cobbled street is really steep (about 70%)! The first time, I asked someone at the hotel to drive the car for me into their parking area, half way down this steep, cobbled road! Once... More

Bare bones, dank and somewhat dark rooms, dingy breakfast (fruit bowl full of nearly-mouldy fruit), tepid service. Overpriced. They give you the worst room available when you arrive and are reluctant to change you even when you point out how many empty ones they have.

We just stayed here for three days during the July winter festival. For 250 reais (apx. $120 U.S.) per night, the value is a joke. Yes, it's an interesting old mansion and the views are nice, but the TV has three channels, the wifi doesn't work in the rooms, there's no heating of any kind beyond old horse blankets of... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Pousada dos Contos. It's a beautiful, old, classic building that blends perfectly with the architecure of the town. The room was clean, comfortable lovely, clean and had a wonderful view of the town and the surrounding mountains. . Locationwise, it's just a stone throw to the main plaza and also very close to the... More

Rooms were large, clean, location was perfect, staff was very helpful. Con: Internet (wi-fi) was not reliable on our floor, so we had to go to other floors to access the internet.

Do not be put off by the narrow entrance corridor, crudely lit by bare compact fluorescent lamps. The old styled reception is at the end of the short corridor. This is a simple, clean, friendly and charming pousada, very well located a few mins walk from main square. A good basic breakfast where they make their own cheese balls in... More
